    Any sheriff in Oregon can issue you one. Get the paper work online and take the class. Send money and fingerprints, etc and wait a bit.

    That said, my understanding is that one or two sheriffs in Oregon are a bit more reluctant to issue than others.

    There is a link floating around here somewhere to OFF(?) that tells you much more about it, or go to www.handgunlaw.us.

    There is a bill in Oregon to honor all other states CHL including Alaska and Vermont that do not require CHL. Oregon Firearms Federation is the best resource for Oregon gun laws.

    HB 2463 if this passes your WA CHL will be valid here.

    I have both and it's recently changed but you can go to the Multnomah County office off from 122nd and Glisan and apply. You have to take a gun safety class, it's like a 2 hour class telling you don't be stupid, and I think now you have to write a letter stating why you want the Oregon CHL. There are certain times you can go in and do it so check there website first it has all the info link below:

    I have both. Wa for 25yrs and Ore for 15. same situation.
    In the past, I had to write a letter/statement of why I perceived a need to carry in Oregon.
    Last two renewals did not require the letter. As previously mentioned, for Oregon you have to take a CWP class. sign-ups are certain days of the week at 122nd & Glisan. Different days than renewals, so I don't remember.

    It is a bit of a longer drive but, if Multnomah Co gives you grief, try Washington Co.

    If you have had any hunting or gun safety class they will likely accept that.
